Arrow When you check a bag - The check number(s) print on the BP

Since the baggage check number prints on the boarding pass (when you check baggage) if you have nothing to check -- it makes sense to display that info.

NBC must denote that the pax is only taking carryon luggage.

I was wondering the same thing, but I think you nailed it... looked through a few of my old stubs and the only one that didn't say "NBC" was a flight from DFW on which I checked a couple bags.

Nice work.
